Overpass construction just east of the Dallas North Tollway. The bridges are wide enough to accommodate 5 lanes in each direction, although the initial facility will have only 3 lanes in each direction.
Most of the 190 between I-35E and the Dallas North Tollway will be depressed below grade.

View of the interchange at 161 and I-635. 190 (north of I-635) and 161 (south of I-635) are connected at this interchange. The piers in the foreground will support the ramp from 161 northbound to I-635 eastbound.
Looking towards the north. The piers on the right will support the 161 main lanes as they pass over I-635. The piers on the left will be the connector ramps from I-635.
View of the 161 main lanes passing over the 114 freeway. 114 can be seen at the lower level. No connection ramps are planned for this interchange. (Connections will be made via the feeders.)
